‘One day with a great teacher is better than thousand days of diligent study’.
Each year, Teacher's Day is celebrated on the 5th of September in India. Teacher's Day is marked in honour of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on September 5, 1888. Dr Radhakrishnan was India's first vice president and second president. He was a great scholar, philosopher and Bharat Ratna recipient. It was in 1962 when Dr Radhakrishnan became the President of India that his birthday came to be observed as Teachers' Day.
It is said that Dr Radhakrishnan's students were keen to celebrate his birthday. However, he suggested instead of celebrating his birthday, it would be his "proud privilege" if the day was observed as Teacher's Day instead.
Pursuing this notion, S.R.N. International School commemorated Teacher’s Day. Student impersonated their favourite teacher and paid homage to Indian Guru-Shishya Parampara. Handmade cards and bouquets’ were given to the teachers by students to honour their indispensability. A short cultural programme was observed including groovy dance performance and brilliant song by school choir. Students played songs for their teachers in order to highlight the traits of their gurus and all this marked this occasion with special fervour and gaiety which will be etched in the memory.
An oath was taken by the teachers whole-heartedly. The oath insisted on quality teaching irrelevant to caste, creed or religion.
On this auspicious day school Principal Mrs. Usha Sharma thanked all S.R.N. Gurus for their selfless devotion and dedication to edify student which help to build a stout nation. Eventually entire teaching staff of S.R.N. bestowed blessings and a note of thank to the students with overwhelming hearts.
